Ford Focus WTCC edition launched

A new 200bhp 1.6 version of the Ford Focus has been launched by WTCC team Arena.

World Touring Car Championship contenders Arena have launched a new special edition Ford Focus WTCC Edition. It’s based on the turbocharged 1.6 Zetec S, with a Mountune performance upgrade, pushing power to 200bhp and to 236lb ft.

Other upgrades include a set of lightweight Team Dynamics Pro Race 1.3 wheels, along with 235/40/ZR18 Yokohama Advan Sport tyres. The car is also fitted with a Mountune-developed short-throw gear selector and stainless steel Powerflow exhaust system.

Inside the cabin, there are a few splashes of carbon fibre trim, and on the outside you get a set of replica World Touring Car stripe kit. The price hasn’t been confirmed, but Arena says the model will be fully covered by Ford’s manufacturer warranty, and available globally.

Volkswagen Golf R review – has the hottest VW still got it?

Undercooked and irritating in equal measure, the Mk8 Golf R’s execution is found wanting, and it’s a loss for the class
